- Eva B.Verified BuyerRated 1 out of 5 stars2 years agoReviewingGaiam Foldable Blue Sundial Printed Yoga Mat 68" 2mm Blue SundialWay too thin and no grip
This travel toga mat was disappointing. Yes, it was small enough to fit into my suitcase easily, but not worth it at all it turns out. It's so thin that it feels like there's no barrier between me and the floor, so exercising is really uncomfortable. There's also no grip on it, so my hands easily slide. Maybe their regular mats are good, but I would say definitely save your money and don't invest in the travel product.Preferred Type of Yoga Practice Vinyasa, Meditation, OtherLevel of Yoga Expertise AdvancedFrequency (a week) 5-7Perspiration Level ModerateDurability Star RatingRated 3.0 on a scale of 1 to 5
